Rating: 6 Pink vinyl for sale on Nuclear Blast... Hope they expand on the sound of their prior album for this one. Global Flatline is my favorite Aborted release, so something in that style would be nice.
Lit. - 14.03.2014 at 23:36  
  Agreed. GF was really good. I don't care if they expand the sound or not; I just want this to be good.

Rating: 6 Judging by that first song, we're in for an average by the numbers Aborted album.
Troy Killjoy - 22.03.2014 at 02:28  
  It looks like Jacob Hansen's producing this one too so hopefully that first track isn't an indicator of overall quality and it manages to at least live up to Global Flatline.

Rating: 7 The album lacks serious punch that's for sure. Fairly catchy at times, but by no means brutal.

Rating: 10 They should release an album dedicated to pinhead. I swear most of their albums have an audio clip from the movies. They should call it "Chronicles of the Hellraiser"
deadone - 30.04.2014 at 04:29  
Rating: 6 Wow, that's a lot better than expected. Whilst those individual tracks didn't stand out on their own, taken as a whole the album's pretty good.

Sounds better than Global Flatline or the one before it (whose name I forget). Still lacks the punch of Archaic Abattoir.


A wierd thing is the distorted Hitler-esque rants in some of the songs. The cover of Sepultura's Arise was pretty shit though and added nothing to the original.

Might go on the "to buy" list.
Lit. - 11.05.2014 at 06:04  
  This isn't bad actually. It's the kind of album that should be appreciated front to back rather than per song. Not as good as Global Flatline but still better than anything they did before that up to Goremageddon.

There was creativity on Global Flatline?

To be fair Aborted like so many bands these days seems to be in a holding pattern. It's not bad but it's usually quite plain and unremarkable.
Troy Killjoy - 02.07.2014 at 04:52  
  LeKiwi you never cease to surprise me. I mean for a guy who considers everything progressive and focuses so much on progressive song structures, musical composition, and technicality, for you to bring up creativity in an Aborted album thread... Leaves me scratching my head for sure.

I like Global Flatline. In fact it's my favorite Aborted release to date, tied with their debut. But I fail to see any creativity there, or at least not any amount that would make you think this one a failure by comparison.

I speak of creativity with respect to melody and groove, something that appears to be lacking severely on this album. Back when Global Flatline came out, I was "innocent". There was not a single song featuring consistent fast drumming, let alone blast beats, that I enjoyed. When I heard said album, I was blown away by the fact that something that heavy could be so enjoyable. Obviously I've since matured musically, but I still recognise that this isn't the Aborted that I valued so much.

Also - the solos. Those original, meticulously-crafted solos...I miss those...

I think Aborted are one of those "the first album you hear is always best" type band.


I had heard their pre-Archaic Abbatoir stuff but not in any major way. I then heard Archaic Abbattoir and think it's a superb album. But nothing else has ever really worked.

I think it's down to the fact there's so little variation in sound that the first one is generally the most memorable on account of being first. Plenty of other bands are like this too.

I was thinking this earlier today and agree that it definitely influences one's perception of an album (especially when the band churns out albums in a similar style), but I can also think of several scenarios where the opposite happened. Interesting point regardless.

I think it does go both ways.

First Paradise Lost stuff I heard was their more Death Metal orientated stuff which I didn't like and sold off. I then heard their clean vocal stuff and loved it.

A less extreme version would be Amon Amarth, who I thought were quite repetitive "meh" until Twilight of the Thundergod which had all cylinders firing perfectly. They then went back to repetitive "meh".

By the same token, bands like Aborted, Kataklysm, Devil Driver, Gassow era Arch Enemy, Cannibal Corpse etc seem to be "a first album heard is best."
LeKiwi - 03.07.2014 at 02:18  
Rating: 6 For instance, "Expurgation Euphoria" off Global Flatline and "Die Verzweiflung" off this one - both songs were written in the same lethargic vibe, yet the former is far more memorable. Not sure if that's biased since I've heard that song dozens of times.

Experiment: if there's anyone for whom this is the only Aborted album they've heard, go listen to Global Flatline and write what you think here.

...or perhaps: the best (or most accessible) album is the most popular and the chances of hearing that first is high? I'm over-thinking again...

What I noticed about the "new" Aborted is that people often disagree on which album is better than the other. I think they're just all approximately on the same level of disappointing compared to Goremaggedon and Engineering. In that sense people might have seen a pattern emerging, and they re-direct new listeners to the older albums automatically.

I think the lack of consensus all points to my notion of "cut and paste" albums to a formula without virtually any variation from album to album or even noticeable difference in quality of production, performance and song writing.

Compare that to say Iron Maiden or Metallica or Carcass or Morbid Angel where there is a lot more clear cut idea as to what their great and what their crap albums are.

Maybe another applicable cliche to apply to many metal bands today would be "playing it safe" and obviously far more than in the past.

Well that's the thing, they didn't just copy/paste, they actually tried to win back their fans and changed a little. I have inside intelligence that told me their incessant changes in lineup are due to that pressure. But still, the same changes in lineup deprived them of whatever consistency they could have acquired with time. That's why the albums are often described as "oh it's different, I don't like it, but I don't know why". Add to that too much haste, musicians living in different countries, and involved in other projects at the same time. I'm not saying these are the only causes of the dip in quality, but these contingencies took their toll on the Aborted I loved.

I've not heard too much in change though at least not since Slaughter & Apparatus. As for their claims about getting brutal, I'm not hearing it.

In the end it's cookie cutter Aborted without any flair to it.

It's good in that you can listen to it and enjoy it but at the same time the new albums are completely interchangeable.


Personally I think they need to amp the groove and brutal melody from Archaic Abbattoir. That album pushed all my commercial mainstream metal whore buttons.
Troy Killjoy - 03.07.2014 at 04:00  
  Really? You don't hear much difference between S&A, Strychnine, and Global Flatline? Not to mention between their back catalog?

Aborted started out somewhat similar to Blood Red Throne's first two albums - that kind of slower-paced groovy death metal but not as emphasized as, say, Bolt Thrower. Then they started picking up some grind influence and speeding up their sound while altering their guitar tone to sound more saw-like than before. Then they moved into far more melodic territory and dropped the speedy grind influence altogether. And now they're in a kind of a modern brutal death metal phase.

If that isn't change, I don't know what is - especially within the confines of death metal.

They did change, for the worst. Strychnine was a very pathetic attempt at something melodic, it has nothing to do with Slaughter & Apparatus. What I meant was that although the band did change directions, and more than once after Goremageddon, the overall quality of their albums was the same: far below what was expected of them. That's why people are still preferring the old Aborted, regardless of changes in style that could have actually won them over.

Changes between earlier stuff and Archaic Abbattoir etc on are substanital.

Since then it's minor tinkering with level of groove and melody.

Just listening to Global Flatline again and it's still very much less groovy Archaic Abbattoir.


And it's certainly not brutal DM ala Cannibal Corpse, Skinless, Suffocation, Immolation etc or even Nile/Deicide and there's plenty of melodic stuff.


And even DM bands used to change much more than that - look at changes to Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Napalm Death, Kataklysm, Atheist, Pestilence etc etc. Notion of DM as stale and not prone to change is a more modern one.


With Aborted, AA was that revolutionary change. Everything since has not even been evolutionary. It's been tinkering with edges.

Troy Killjoy - 03.07.2014 at 04:35  
  Of course they don't have much in common with the legitimate heavyweights of brutal death metal (although I won't get into a debate over your inclusion of Cannibal Corpse and Deicide since that's a whole other topic) but they are now more influenced by that scene in terms of their songwriting compared to S&A and Strychnine.

I don't know how you only consider these changes to be "tinkering". There's a reason for the band facing such a negative backlash from their fans over the past few years, because the change in their sound was so substantial. With this album and Global Flatline they sought to get back on the good side of the fans who wanted a more impactful and in-your-face form of brutality, but they still held on to their melodic leanings.

They aren't about to release an Unspoken King for the sake of changing it up that drastically. They still intend to fit within the confines of extreme metal and they've generally had a set direction to follow but with varying ways of achieving that throughout their entire discography. If you're sticking to your argument that these changes aren't more noticeable than "tinkering" then I think it's safe to say we're hearing things much differently.

Backlash started in 2005 when Archaic Abbatoir came out and a lot of the fanbase derided it as Metalcore. AA was essentially their Unspoken King. Except Cryptopsy is much bigger so more people cared and it got a lot more press. Since then it's same as Metallica post AJFA or In Flames post-Clayman: virtually every release has some sort of backlash regardless of content.

As for brutallity, current CC/Deicide are far more brutal than Aborted. After all why do you think they appeal to an absolute mainstream poser like me? For the most partAborted are very mainstream DM with conventional rythms and song structure and lots of melody and groove. There are exceptions that are more brutal ala Eructations of Carnal Artistry which is a bonus track on Global Flatline.

I find them closer to the likes of modern Vader or Kataklysm in terms of brutality than brutal Death/Grind of any ilk. Incidentally Kataklysm also got derided for turning wannabe groove when Shadows and Dust came out and poser me loved it. I certainly don't listen to Brutal Death Metal and like my Death Metal posery (i.e. groovy, slightly melodic and mainstream sounding).
Troy Killjoy - 03.07.2014 at 05:01  
  I'm not sure why you're focusing so closely on the genre debate as I'm not trying to make them out to be a purely brutal death metal band. Like I said, they've retained the melodic aspect of their sound that they introduced a handful of years ago. They're certainly more streamlined than traditional brutal death metal bands such as Suffocation or Cephalotripsy, but they are also undoubtedly influenced by that level of brutality compared to the "normal" death metal bands. This likely has a lot to do with the fact they had already dabbled with grind elements in the past.

My point is that over the course of their career, Aborted have changed fairly drastically (for a band that never changed genres). I can get on board with someone saying Nile haven't changed their sound, only tinkered. Same goes for Cannibal Corpse. All of their albums follow the same formula and feature pretty much all of the defining characteristics that have become synonymous with those bands. But Aborted have gone from groove to grind to melody to brutality, borrowing elements from previous albums with every subsequent release because they are in a constant state of change - again, within the confines of death metal. (Just in case anyone reading this jumps on me for making them sound avant-garde.)

I would call that more than simply tinkering, especially when you look at this album and its predecessor compared to their back catalog and everything in between. As I said before, if you're hearing more of the same then we will not agree on this as our sense of hearing is clearly different.

And since Archaic Abbattoir Aborted have followed the same path.


I don't understand the going from groove to grind to melody to brutality.

They started off brutal goregrind/death metal (indeed Engineering The Dead was too brutal for me and I sold the album). They then embraced a more melodic, groovier approach and have lingered there and have basically played around with quantity of groove and melody.

They certainly haven't gone back to their older brutal days.

I'm just listening to Job For A Cowboy's Doom straight after Global Flatline and JFAC is way more brutal in terms of sound, structure, vocal delivery etc. That say's something. Modern Aborted are pedestrian in terms of brutality - as stated it's why I like it.

No problemo dude! It's good fun to indulge in some metal orientated discussion that's not "this sucks, this rocks."

I recommend cranking some Aborted for educational purposes.
deadone - 03.07.2014 at 06:05  
Rating: 6 So listening to this one again.

Firstly, it's not as good as Global Flatline IMO. Song writing is uninspired. It's down rated to a 6 as such.

Secondly and more pertinently to the discussion, it is more brutal overall than previous efforts. So a point to Mr Killjoy

Both melody and groove elements have been considerably reduced. Overall sound and vibe are still quite "mainstream" ala Kataklysm though. And it by the time the album is halfway through it goes back from brutality to bog standard modern Aborted albeit with toned down groove and melody.

As stated the song writing is generally quite uninspired. It's dull and repetitive aside from the wierd Hitler-ish "Die Verzweiflung." There's lots of songs and they blur into one another. Also some of the solos seem unnatural and bolted on to the song. Song writing improves slightly towards the end of the album when they revert to their standard style. But it still comes across as mainly laclustre and "by the numbers." In fact best song seems to be a bonus track: Saprophytes.

Also their version of Arise sucks.

Just my $0.02.

Rating: 6 See dead one, nobody lashed into you for what you said

That other day I listened to four Aborted albums in one night, which is extremely hard to digest. Especially after not listening to any in six years. Seeing you all keep saying Global Flatline is better than this one, I gave them both - and Goremageddon to have a point of reference - a listen again; so as to finally decide which new Aborted I prefer. I should specify that I never said Necro was better than Flatline.

I see where you guys come from. GF is groovier than NM, the bass lines are almost funky and a lot more present. That shit is heavy at times. The energy in NM seems to wind down starting at the middle as said dead one. But I don't find it too devoid of melody. I noticed one or two solos that seemed to be forced and felt like filling more than anything, like the one in Excremental Veracity.
I also have the impression the production is a bit foggy on NM, compared to GF. But That might be just an impression. One thing that did not change is the overuse of samples. I mean seriously. We get it.

All in all, yeah I prefer GF over NM.

Old Aborted was indeed boring. I also think GF is the best thing they've done.

Never did anything for me. Every time I tried listening to it, I felt the urge to play a Carcass album instead.

  Engineering the Dead is really the only one I like, though Archaic Abattoir isn't too shabby.
